Target is the development of China’s largest cellulosic ethanol manufacturing plant, located in Siping City, Jilin Province. The agreement allows NTL to license DuPont’s cellulosic ethanol technology and use DuPont™ Accellerase® enzymes, to produce renewable biofuel from the leftover biomass on Jilin Province’s highly productive corn farms. NTL is working to secure the necessary government approvals and support to implement this agreement. NTL aims to produce cellulosic renewable fuel for the rapidly growing Chinese liquid biofuel market, which is projected to exceed 7 billion liter per year by 2020.
